People judge you by your actions, not your intentions. You may have a heart of gold, but so does a hard-boiled egg. – Good Reading
Legacies don’t just happen. They don’t fall out of heaven, materialize in the middle of our living rooms, or appear on our doorsteps accompanied by a knock and a note. Legacies are created. They require thought, preparation, and action. What we do today becomes our legacy tomorrow – either positive or negative.
A thousand words will not leave as lasting an impression as one deed. The legacy you leave will depend on the life that you live. Connect your good intentions with awesome actions. If you don’t do it, you don’t really believe it. Some people spend their whole time searching for what’s right, but then can’t seem to find any time to practice it. Remember, knowing what is right to do and then not doing it is wrong. Your life is not written with a pen but with your actions. To do nothing is the way to be nothing.
When we wrestle with our problems, they lose their grip on us. When we dare to confront the things that scare us, we open the door to personal liberty. Creativity is built into every one of us; it’s part of our design. Each of us lives less of the life intended for us when we choose not to use the creative powers within us. We need to dream big dreams, but unfortunately people seem to give them up quicker than anything. If you give up on your dreams, it will never become a reality. Thus, we need to pursue our dreams, no matter the cost.
All you need is an idea. Be brave enough to live creatively. A man of words and not of deeds is like a flower bed full of weeds. Do not let weeds grow around your dreams. To only dream of the person you would like to be is to waste the person you are. Don’t just dream of great accomplishments; stay awake and do them. For there is nothing you cannot do if you dare to believe.
But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded. 2 Chronicles 15:7
